Hi there, whenever I 'get info' on any file on my desktop, it's always locked. When I unlock, retype password, close the info window and open it again it's locked again! I've gone through system preferences and cannot find anything that pertains to the problem. As someone who's used Macs for ages (as a typesetter) I'm completely baffled. Any help would be very much appreciated
QUOTE Thanks
